About

Sometimes issues affecting one family member end up impacting the whole family. Is your child struggling in school? Is your family going through a transition such as a divorce, a move or other such disruption? Are you struggling to communicate with your spouse? Do you have a foster/adopted child who has been affected by trauma? All of these (and more) are reasons to seek counseling. I love working with clients to identify strategies to help you create a happy and healthy environment for your family.
It's okay to not know what to do next. Parenting is one of the hardest (yet most rewarding) jobs on the planet. Maintaining a healthy marriage can be equally challenging. Let me help your family.
Together, we will create a plan with strategies to help move your child and your family forward toward health and healing rather than frustration and chaos.
